Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Reference number: FOI2022/00517

Hello, I have received your email and I am very thankful for the photos that you have provided.
However, I am still unsure about the actual layout of the signal box. As I don’t know how many levers there are inside the box. I would also like to take up your recommendation for photos of the signal box as a whole.

I am also quite interested in the complicated interlocking underneath the signal box. Therefore, I’d like to ask for photos of the ground floor (locking room) if possible, a photo of all the levers and photos of the signal box as a whole (including all the equipment such as block indicators, levers, computers and signalling books).

I understand that the signal box is active and may be challenging to obtain said photos. I am very grateful for any photos you may provide me with.

Please send me your reply at your earliest convenience.

Thank you.

Your faithfully,

Drew Sharp

Dear FOI,
I am writing to you because my request has been delayed. By law, you should have responded by the 1st of July 2022. However, I have had no response from you since the 6th of June 2022.

Please send me your reply promptly as I am unable to continue the construction of my simulator until you provide me with the information I need.

Yours sincerely,
